We only need 7 numbers for modulus (or clock) arithmetic mod 7
including working with fractions. Explore how to divide numbers and
write fractions in modulus arithemtic.
Alf Coles writes about how he tries to create 'spaces for exploration' for the students in his classrooms.
Crack this code which depends on taking pairs of letters and using
two simultaneous relations and modulus arithmetic to encode the
Decipher a simple code based on the rule C=7P+17 (mod 26) where C is the code for the letter P from the alphabet. Rearrange the formula and use the inverse to decipher automatically.
